Kawaii Art


Kawaii is a japanese word meaning “adorable, cute, sweet.” It’s common for the Japanese to exclaim, “Kawaiiiiiii!!!” upon seeing something or someone taht is exceptionally cute – a puppy, kitten, or baby, for example. Kawaii can also aply to anything that appears childish, both in term of an object’s graphic simplicity – geometrical and curvedshapes and bright colors – and the humourous and/or possitive message it conveys. Another feature of kawaii is that everything, be it object or animal, is humanized. The proportion between head and body is extremely distorted, for example, Hello Kitty – the perfect global example of kawaii.

I had wanted to put togethera bookon kawaii art for some time. At the risk of sounding like a kawaii freak, I have to admit that I am a huge fan of the art.

This posting of this blog is whimsical compendium of kawaii-based creations from a handful of my favorite artist, many whom are my friends. Each artist, of course, has his/her own unmistakable style

I welcome you to my kawaii world, and hope you enjoy your trip.
